Watching television has become a favourite pastime of recent decades. It is a source of entertainment, education, news, sport, weather and current affairs. It can easily convey a message to the masses, it can make us laugh or cry, and inform us of what's going on in the world. Television is also a great way to wind down and relax after a hard day at work or on a lazy weekend lying on the couch, watching our favourite programs or sport. As we spend so much time in front of the T.V. it seems sensible to create a relaxing space, with comfortable couches and chairs, and undistracting decorations.
